Agent Mulder David Duchovny X-Files Pancake (reworked)

This is a reworking of a painting from a few years ago of actor David Duchovny as Agent Fox Mulder of the US science fiction television program 'The X-Files' with a pancake on top of his head. The show is currently enjoying a renewal.

The repainting was done directly over a canvas print of the original file. I added darker blacks over the background, refined some detail on the face and largely overhauled the pancake.

The original painting is not available, but I have made a new canvas print available on my Etsy.

Thanks to the art forum at Reddit which last week posted my original Bernie Sanders pancake portrait. The imgur link has been viewed more than a million times.

I have another Bernie Iowa themed painting which I started before the above and which I may have completed later this evening.

Both the original painting and canvas prints are available at my Etsy.

Katamari Damacy Gun Collector Obama

A painting of US President Barack Obama as the Prince from the Playstation Katamari Damacy game, collecting all of the guns of the world on his Katamari ball as his father The King Of All Cosmos looks on.

This painting was recently purchased by a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon, who wondered if it was in response to President Obama's recent intention of employ executive action, independent of the will of Congress, to enact tougher gun registration.  It wasn't.  I had actually been thinking about this image for the past six years, and it was a request by Politico Magazine for the use of a number of images of past Obama paintings for possible use in their current 'The Obama Issue' which made me think of it.

Perhaps I'll get around to that 'Obama Balloon Boy' painting I've been long thinking of as well.

The Katamari Damacy image above is a reworking of the original post on Twitter.

An 8 1/2 by 11 inch canvas print of the above is available on Etsy.

Thanks to the video game collective blog attract mode for posting my Katamari painting.

This was inspired by the painting of Ben Carson and Black Jesus which is hanging in Dr. Carson's home. My Jesus is the Aaron McGruder version.

If you were searching for a depiction of a socialist with a food item on top of his head, you've arrived at your destination.

The original of this Bernie Sanders painting is no longer available; it was purchased by a fellow who has for a long time collected my artwork; there are number of these people and I can't explain our relationship.

There is however, a very nice canvas print of the above image on Etsy.

New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees Breesus Miracle Of Fish And Pancakes

By request-my portrait of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, also known as Breesus, in the guise of Christ and in an painting which I call 'The Miracle Of The Fish And Pancakes.'

  Drew Brees Breesus

I posted this painting originally to twitter last week and revised it today, adding the syrup flow to match the red sash and also improving the fish and likeness.

I've posted most paintings to twitter during the past year just because it is the easiest thing to do.  I'll try to update blogger with these same images before the end of the year. My desktop computer has gone lame and even though I can still manage well enough to add my own image addresses online, which pretty much guarantees they will appear in a GIS search, the process is wrenching.

The original painting is taken but I do have a print posted to my Etsy account.  Etsy is another place to find some of my recent things.  I've pretty much split postings between Etsy, Flickr and Twitter. Some paintings go to Tumblr, and again, very few here to Blogger.  Hopefully I'll reactivate my Facebook account after the turn of the year.

Looking at this Breesus a bit more, I think I'll make a few additional revisions. But not now.
